In today’s world of college football, roster turnover is inevitable. Gone are the days you can be pretty confident that barring any legal issues the kids that signed in a recruiting class would be there for four years. Now, some kids that sign in December might not even make it to campus in January. It’s an era that has given more power to the players but also resulted in major shakeups to team personnel across the country each season.

Coaching changes only exasperate the turnover as players who committed to completely different schemes look for opportunities elsewhere while coaching staffs hope to add players that better fit their vision for the program. It’s a positive and negative for both players and programs.

We will do our best to keep track of who is going and who is coming over the next few months. Broken down by position groups, here is the current state of Auburn’s 2022 football roster.
